Abstract : A critical survey was made of the significant theories of strength, for guidance in developing relationships among the strength properties of ceramics. The mechanistic theories appeared to offer the greater possibilities, but no theory treated all controlling variables, and all theories lacked adequate experimental support. The need remains apparent for a unified theory and supporting experimental data.
